Lights, Camera, Coronation!

1 May 2023 - 31 August 2023

Don your gown and fix your crown and get selfie ready on our throne fit for a King or Queen!

Visitors are invited to strike a royal pose throughout the summer. Beginning from 1 May, a historic chair will be on display in the Nave of the Cathedral, positioned just under the stained-glass window depicting the Coronation of Henry III. It will be accompanied by regal dressing up costumes, offering visitors of all ages the chance to sit in state and pose for a photo to remember this exciting time in our history.

The ‘throne’ will be available during normal Cathedral opening hours, which you can check on this page of the website. There is no need to book - just turn up!
